Festive Fare

We were so happy to have our oldest son Greg and his wife Michelle journey from South Carolina to spend 10 days in Morgantown.  Our son Chris lives in town and we so enjoy that closeness, spending at least some time every week together.  Michelle was born here too-but her parents moved to the west coast when they retired.  With her sister in town, and more friends here too, Michelle's parents are happy to visit.  Bob's brother loves their company and leaves his bachelor home to spend time here too.

I'm a career meal planner, and wanted to document our holiday feasts in some way.  Here are a few pictures and menus we did together as a family.  Most of the food was made from scratch.  

"Three days of family feasts-the first two days with just us and the kids-the third day with David and the Hunts.  It was fun working in our loving home, enjoying each others' company and treating David and the Hunts to a holiday away from home."

Christmas Eve Taco Bar
Mongolian Beef, Sesame Wild Rice, Brocooli Slaw
Taco Chicken, Black Bean Salsa

On January 1, Greg and Michelle made everyone an egg sausage tortilla bar-another winner-on the day Michelle's parents returned to California.
